i18n news and Product Updates about WebTranslateIt

Check if you can translate your app with WebTranslateIt

Today we’re very happy to release an updated section to our documentation regarding File Formats.

We have been working several weeks on that update, and we internally find it quite useful, as it’s compiling information from all over internet about which language file formats can be used on which platform (meaning which software framework, programming language or ecosystem).

We also now have a new page showing our supported frameworks and programming languages.

Each programming language or framework page includes information about which language file format can be used on that platform, some links of interest including i18n libraries for that platform on GitHub, and some explanations on how to localize it.

Here for example is the page about Node.js, another one about Python, Laravel and Ruby on Rails.

As indicated on each page, let us know if you found an error or would like to submit a useful library for internationalizing a platform. We really value your feedback.

With that, thanks for reading!

Now is not the time to be neutral

By Estelle on March 8, 2022

As we all know, Western international institutions are taking severe economical measures in an attempt to paralyze Russia’s financial means and force them to back down and people from all over the world are donating money to charities helping out Ukrainians during this atrocious time.

Meanwhile in Russia, social networks are being censored by the government and independent journalists are being silenced by a draconian law adopted on the 4th of March that makes the publication of “false” or “mendacious” information about the Russian armed forces punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Russian people are being cut from the only access they had to unbiased sources of information about Russia’s raging war against Ukraine.

As a localization platform, we’ve always supported charity organizations that needed to reach out to a global audience by providing them our services for free. It is essential to global welfare that information regarding world poverty, conflicts, environmental matters circulate freely to raise awareness of what’s wrong in this world, who are the people trying to solve these issues and how the public can help out.
The thought of the Russian people losing access to essential information, information that should make them want to overthrow their leader, is unbearable.

From now on WebTranslateIt will donate to Reporters Without Borders the money earned every month with our Russian customers’ subscriptions, in the hope that they can support independent Russian media and convey the information the Russian people are entitled to.

Every gesture count. If you can, donate too.

Hey guys!

We’ve released a bunch of new features on WebTranslateIt in the past few months and we have more to come.

We have realised that our users don’t always know about it, so we’ve just released a feature that let our users know when there is a new feature available to use right on the Dashboard.

If you’re not interested, you can always click on the “X” icon and the notification will close right down.

As always, don’t hesitate to let us know what you think at support@webtranslateit.com
